Pros: part-time shifts range from 4-6 hrs during week and 9 hours sat and sun
Cons: benefits are not worth it if you only work part-time, pt employees limited to 19.5 hrs a week
The most enjoyable part in the recreation environment is it is nice to get to know all the regulars that come in each day. Every day there is some type of class going on, so there is always something to do, like register patrons for certain classes or memberships, and the shift usually goes by quickly. I learned how to use RecTrac, a recreation software. I also learned how to deal with any customers that get angry or frustrated with something. The hardest part is working in the evening when all the supervisors/managers are out of office. If any issue arises, it is up to us to figure out the best resolution. I have been very lucky to work with awesome people who really enjoy this job and it is easy to work together day to day.
